I tried EVERYTHING else.... ACV, iodine, freezing, propolis, colloidal silver, banana extract for the wart I had in my left nostril. Inside the nose is a very difficult place to treat since I can't put a banana peel in it and attempting to freeze it was very challenging. (The banana peel trick was the only thing that worked for my daughter's plantar warts.) The only thing that kept it mostly at bay was putting ACV and iodine on it 2-3 time per day. I had done this for around a year's time and if I stopped, the wart would reappear within days.

I recently found a tube of salicylic acid 2% for psoriasis at the dollar store and decided to try it, since I know salicylic acid is a common treatment for warts. So far it has done a great job and my wart is gone. I'm still applying it with a Q-tip 2-3 times per day because I'm so afraid it will come back since I've been dealing with it for so long... but I have a feeling it's gone for good. :)

Hello, I swear my life on this treatment. As a teenager i had only one wart . Really annoying i thought but was able to live with it. Couple of years later though the warts started spreading. You can imagine how embarrassing it was since they became quite visible.
My grandmas sister told me to put salicylic acid and to tomato on the warts and wrap them up. I did that twice a day putting generous amounts of acid on each wart and a peace of tomato. A week latter imagine my surprise THEY WERE GONE!!!!Have not had them since and I can tell you I had tried everything including burning with the really painful liquid nitrogen. It is a bit of a challenge to buy salicylic acid but you can definitely find it online if not in you local pharmacy. Good luck!!!

Remedy to kill plantar wart on foot. Ten years ago my son had a large plantar wart on the bottom of his foot so I decided to play Dr. and see what happened. The remedy I used is to soak the foot in very warm water (for about 15 minutes) right before bed, dry the foot completely, scrape top of wart gently with a knife, apply alcohol and let dry, apply any drugstore wart remover solution and let it dry, apply a bandaid, wrap in duct tape. Leave on until the following night and repeat nightly for six weeks. This remedy cured my sons plantar wart and it never came back! We were amazed. Consistancy is the key for success in using this remedy. This remedy can also be done immediately after the bath. Hope this remedy helps.

I removed a wart with Salicycle Acid found over-the-counter at any drug store. The problem is that the acid creates a callous over the wart so one must continually wear down the callous and wart using a callous file or pumous stone before each acid application 3 or 4 times per day. Use the stone or file wet before each acid application. Eventaully, one will arrive at the root of the wart but continue the applications for another few days until there is no sign of the wart and there is no pain when you apply pressure to the area. It took me about 1 week to become wart free.
